Judaism meets social media this month on computers all around the world!

Sunday begins the Hebrew month of Elul, the last month on the calender and 29 days before Rosh Hashanah.  Jewish tradition teaches us to reflect on ourselves leading up to the Jewish New Year.  Please join thousands of others in preparing for this time of understanding through the use of your own social media platforms (Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Youtube, Twitter etc!).  You can post personal reflections, pictures and videos with the hashtag #blogelul or #elulgram!

Please SUBMIT your posts to ProgressiveJudaism and/or use the hashtags so that our jumblr community can reblog them!

I hope that you all have a reflective month!

Challenged below for why I am mourning genocide in Gaza. I mourn genocide in Gaza because I am the granddaughter of a family half wiped out in a holocaust and I know genocide when I see it. People are asking why I am taking this ‘side’. There are no sides. I mourn all victims. But every law of war and international law is being broken in the targeting of civilians in Gaza. I stand with the people of Gaza exactly because things might have turned out differently if more people had stood with the Jews in Germany. I stand with the people of Gaza because no one stood with us.
